Soft Tan Preset

You might want a low saturated and a low contrast vibe for your photos on instagram. Like #FeedGoals isn’t it? So how do we turn a regular photo into a Soft Tan look on Lightroom Mobile? Let’s get started!


This preset works best on a monochromatic photo. It means that the subject in your photo should not be too colorful but instead, colors like black, white, or brown tone should dominate in the picture to achieve this perfectly.

Getting Started

On this tutorial, let us use the landscape mode over the portrait mode.


Step: One

First thing you want to edit is the Light.

Note: This could vary from photo to photo. You could always adjust it to your preferred look.

Step: Two

Adjust your Color.

Lastly, remove color/s that may interfere on achieving a perfect soft tan look.


Step: Three

Enhance your photo with the Detail.

Step: Four

Create a Preset. A Preset will enable you to skip step 1 to 3 the next time you have a photo to edit with the exact adjustments. However, a Preset is adjustable. You could always adjust the Light, Color, etc. to your preferred look.

First, click the three dots on the upper right corner. (red arrow)

Second, click the Create Preset. (yellow arrow)

Third, name the Preset.


How to locate the Preset you created?

Now you are all done!
